Thankful Thursday 6/2/2016

I am thankful that I am feeling better today - I am starting to get my sense of smell and taste back! Just in time for my physical tomorrow. I have off from both jobs tomorrow; I had a floating holiday I had to use before June 30,so I decided to take tomorrow off. After my physical I will be finishing my book and will be going out for dinner.

I've also been fending for myself this week since my parents are in Alaska until late Saturday night. I've cooked a few meals for myself and the lamb I was worrying about turned out really good! On Wednesday I brought the left overs in and everyone said it smelled really good. That made me proud. I also made Moroccan chicken in the crock pot that will be for dinner on Saturday. I had a lot made and I brought it into work today to share with two of my coworkers. They enjoyed it and said I did a great job making the dish. I feel thankful that people enjoyed it.

I also put up my travel photography display up at the library tonight. I am thankful for all of my travel opportunities and I'm thankful about the D.C. trip last Saturday and Canada last month. I'm thankful my aunt picked me up from the bus station last Saturday night as well.

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I am happy to learn that you are feeling better. There's not much joy in life w/o your senses of smell and taste. I hope your physical goes well. I know you will be eager to debrief your parents when they return from their Alaskan adventure.

    For dinner this evening Mrs. Shady cooked a New England style seafood feast that consisted of lobster, crab legs, scallops, corn on the cob and red potatoes. It was delicious and I am thankful to have a wife who is such a great cook. I know that you are quite an excellent cook yourself.

    Happy Friday, dear friend JM!

    1. Hi, Shady,

      It feels great to be able to breathe through my nose! I know it was partly allergies since Mimi has allergies and she was very stuffy too. She's a lot better now! My physical is at 10:30; I'm going to work on my book until 8... then put it together when I get home and get it done.

      Ohhh! It sounds like you had a feast for dinner and it sounds amazing! Mmmm. I will have to try to make a fish boil some time. :)

      Happy Friday,dear friend!
